"Service erratic, pork was overcooked, dry and tasteless, the lamb was tough and the flavors of the food was bland .
Very disappointing.

"We loved our dinner there. The ceviche, steak tartar, and ribs were absolutely amazing! The citrus flavor in the dressing of the asparagus salad was perfectly balanced. Mateo came out from the kitchen and talked to us about where all the fresh ingredients came from - what a great guy! Best margarita I have had in a long time..."

"Took my mom (and her friend) her for her birthday. Everything was very fresh, organic, locally sourced. The "tacones" were delicious and the presentation was great, but they were a little smaller than I was expecting. You definitely are paying a slight premium for such fresh ingredients, but it is worth it.
The homemade hot sauces are VERY hot. If you like hot sauce, you will love them."

"Dined with my wife and 5 yr old son. Menu is limited and not kid friendly. They served no juice. All in, bill was $150. We ordered three drinks. Tequila drinks are excellent if that is your thing. The two dishes that we ordered were well prepared."

"This is not a taqueria instead it is a gourmet food experience with latin and global fusion flavors. Mateo uses the best, freshest local ingredients. He understands flavors and is always innovating. We love the fantastic seasonal and traditional margaritas. We had blood orange and asian pear - delicious! They also have extensive tequila and mezcal selections."

"One of us had lamb enchilada and it had a gross black seasoning that had no flavor. I had the lamb rack which was better but bland. The drinks were small and expensive. The food expensive and tasteless. We each had one cocktail, the above dishes and nothing else and the bill was $100."

"We enjoyed our dinner here 110%. The restaurant is small and quiet {it was a weekday night}, but picked up as the evening wore on. Our cocktails were good and followed by a pleasant, reasonably priced Gewurztraminer. The food is fresh and innovative. We enjoyed ribs, lamb enchiladas, and cochinita pilba. Best of all were the corn tortillas!! Too die for. Come live in my neighborhood! Service was excellent."

"We booked a Brunch for 1PM. Upon arrival there was only one other group. The service was slow and the food was truly marginal. Ceviche was fishy! Not a good pick for us even having looked at two review sources. Won't recommend this one!"

(Fair) 2 / 5
"We had a very disappointing experience at Mateo's. The appetizers were good, but our entrees were fair at best. I had the lamb enchiladas which were edible, but uninteresting. My adult daughter and husband both ordered the beef dish which was a combination of beef and potatoes which was unappealing to look at (it was a gray stew-looking thing) and had no flavor. I felt as though we were experiencing the "B Team" in the kitchen as the reviews were good on Chowhound and Open Table, and our experience did not mirror this. The service was good, but, otherwise, the food didn't live up to the price or my expectations."

"Went in with high expectations for this place after the reviews. Must say, we were a tad disappointed. Food was just ok - the guac was decent, the tacones were ok too but the entree with the tempeh and the beet salad were very average. Would have thought a Mexican place would have good margaritas, but not the case - they messed up a classic trying too hard to add their own twist. Service quality was far behind the pricing of this place, our drinks came half way through our meal after following up twice and in general was indiffer"

"The interior is simply and pleasantly decorated. The wooden tables, chairs and paneling give the space warmth and coziness. Our server was low-key but very knowledgeable and helpful. We appreciated the different approach taken by the chef to Mexican food, with his simple presentations, unusual flavor combinations and sauces carefully distinguished from course to course. Prices are expensive and with the menu's tendency to a small plate format means that cost quickly goes up. Thus, for us this is a place we will happily return to but only as a special occasion treat."

"What a rip off. We went to Mateo's Cocina Latina for thanksgiving dinner, it was a special menu, $60 per adults but there was nothing special about the experience.
The service was very poor, we had to wait 15 minutes for somebody to take our order, then another 15 minutes for our appetizers followed by an exta 10 minutes to get knifes and forks... yes they forgot about that...
The food was ranging form average to plain bad. The onion soup was just onions in a watery sauce, the fish was overcooked and nothing to write home about. The beef stew had more potatoes than beef... Well this was only saved by the deserts which were actually good.
We paid for a fixed menu thanksgiving dinner and there was nothing about thanksgiving at all. Not even decoration in the restaurant, let alone the menu which looked like the standard one, only more expensive and with less choice.
Oh and by the way, the staff should really say goodbye when people leave, unless they want to be rude on purpose."

"I came here with a group (6 total) to celebrate my birthday. We were the first table to be seated. Seven other tables (two larger parties) were seated after us and ALL of them were served before we were - they had food before we even received drinks. It was a joke! Our server said she was the only server working - on a Saturday night??? We did witness other people leaving, after waiting an hour without water. At the end of our meal, our server overcharged us and tried to get us to just go with it. When we said 'no, you need to fix this... void the credit card charge and resubmit for the correct amount'. After quite some time, she came back and we were assured this error was corrected, though she could not provide a 'void' receipt. You guessed it... they charged us twice! I'm now working with the credit card company to get the overage off my card. Go somewhere else where the employees work together to take care of their customers."

"Who knew there was more than wine in Healdsburg? A beautiful restaurant. Delightful bartender. Awesome habanero salsa, and if it's not offered ask! If we had it from the start, there would be another star. Tequila bar well stocked and bartender knowledgeable. (Ivan is great) Food ok, much better with the salsa. All in all nice evening."
